Old Buildings Now Gone

Does anyone have any pictures of old buildings in Cardiff that were demolished and shouldn't have been?

Re: Old Buildings Now Gone

Pick a building, any building... ;)

Re: Old Buildings Now Gone

There is a website called which has lots of photos of buildings in Cardiff some remaining, some gone.

Also there is a Facebook group called (I think) Pictures of Old Cardiff which has lots of photos. Quite often there is a photo of a street scene from the 19th century and the contributors take a photo of the street scene as it is now so you can directly compare and contrast.

Other than that I think the Council has an archive of historical photos although I'm not sure how to access this online. There are probably other contributors on this forum who do.

Hope that helps.

Take a look at my website:
Not been updated in a while, but a few good articles on there about some former buildings pulled down and some others which have been converted/refurbed etc.

The Capitol was the worst casualty in my opinion.

Interesting imae of newport road (see old blind institute on left of image and old queen street station)


Re: Old Buildings Now Gone

Is today's photo of the buildings in the bay, marketed as Merchant Place? Is there a change to the marketing sign? I assume not but it's not clear!

Not pictures - a movie!
